the next president of the united states will appoint several justices to the supreme court. that often is the most lasting legacy of an entire presidency. i find it strange, given the amount of coverage that citizens united has got, i found if i'm traveling or speaking to groups reporting, among progressive folks, everyone knows citizens unite and hates them. everyone knows the court gave us citizens united, the court upheld the piece of legislation not just for this president but probably democrats of the last 30 or 40 years. yet, the court is nowhere in the election so far. jeff, you wrote about this yesterday. what is your take on why we are not hearing about the court on the campaign trail. >> because, i have asked political professionals this question repeatedly. democrats and republicans say the same thing. they say the people who really care about the supreme court are committed to their party anyway. the people who want roe preserved are going to vote for the democrats those who want it reverses are going to vote republican. the swing voters don't care even if they are pro-choi
don't think anybody in the state of nevada or the united states wants to continue overpayments to insurance companies but by restricting and ending those overpayments we extended the life of medicare by nine years. >> the interesting thing about your opponent is he voted for the early version of the ryan plan which is the more aggressive which would have turned all of medicare for those under 55 into the voucher program. he voted for the second version which was the more moderate version. he has a strange record on this. >> well, look. there's a lot to do with political expediency. he voted twice, not once to turn it over. that's not going to work in this state. >> the reason i played that clip is because dean heller realized the second time he ended up passing the ryan budget he realized he had to run for re-election. he didn't vote for the ryan budget. even though it moved to the left. it offers seniors a choice. to me, if you're going to say what happened a month ago that switched things, i think it's ryan. i think ryan on the ticket has made this -- and for some reason stra
